This building was originally part of the Lisbon Expo in the mid 1990's.
o it is a reuse of an existing building.

187-room luxury hotel modelled on the traditional sailboat on Portuguese coastline 

On the waterfront in Lisbon lies the Myriad by SANA Hotels. The two symbolic sails which embrace the tower blend in with the concrete structure in a smooth symbiosis. In the middle a vertical transparent atrium brings diffused light into the space and allows for a breathtaking sea view. Hung from the 70m-high ceiling, jellyfish-like chandeliers give the guests inside the panoramic lifts a sense of being part of the nautical world.

An immense lounge on ground floor welcomes visitors, an area developed around a central bar offers an informal and elegant place to stay, work, eat and drink. Light and transparency is present everywhere. Designed as a foredeck across the river, the lounge is the 'place to be' day and night all year round. On the two wings all the 187 rooms and suites have an innovative concept to get the most out of sea and city views. Beds take the premium selected spot in front of the window while the remaining spaces also benefit from the outstanding vista.

The cherry on top of the Myriad by SANA is the upper floor spa with its private pool, sauna, hamman, flotarium, and treatment rooms, all with astonishing views. The interior design extends and completes the architectural concept, bringing together contemporary style, comfort and sophistication. A silver and black colour palette, pointed with red details adds sophistications and cosmopolitanism to this unique ambience.
